RESOLUTIONS

1) ON ALARMING PRICE RISE

The common people of India are facing an alarming price rise especially on food items breaking all the past records. The poor and workers are pushed to semi poverty. This meeting vehemently protests against the negligence of Govt of India towards the starving population and this meeting demand effective measure to control the price rise which provides vast opportunity to gather wealth by middle men.

2) ON DELHI RALLY BY CENTRAL TRADE UNIONS ON 23rd FEB 2011

The general trade unions including INTUC are joined together for the first time on the issues of i) price rise, ii) privatization of public sector enterprises iii) curtailing of trade union rights iv) new pension scheme etc. following to the Sep 27, 2010 general strike, the united forum is organizing a rally at New Delhi on 23-02-2010. This meeting whole heartedly supports the movement and also call upon the entire working class to join behind the rally.

3) ON THE DEMAND OF ADJUDICATION ON GRIEVANCES OF LOCO RUNNING STAFF

The entire Loco Running Staff of Indian Railways are agitated on the injustice brought to them by sixth central pay revision. This most vital category of Railways has staged many agitations from the date of announcement of pay revision, under the leadership of AILRSA. The intervention of Labour Ministry to find an amicable settlement of grievances did not win due to the adamant attitude of Railway administration in the year long conciliation meetings before RLC (C), NDLS. This meeting demands the Central Labour Ministry to refer the grievances of Loco Running Staff for the decision of National Labour tribunal.

4) ON REVISION OF HOER

This meeting protest against the denial of fair serving conditions to the Running Staff by the Railway Management who are supposed to be a model employer being a Government institution. It is great shameful to see that the Railway Management did not materialize the agreement on 14-02-2006 with JCM unions for appointing a judicial review committee on HOER. The silence of the AIRF an NFIR on this betrayal is also condemnable. This meeting urges the Railway Administration to set up the judicial review committee immediately.

5) ON DENIAL OF HUMANLY POSSIBLE DUTY HOURS, LEAVE, WEEKLY REST etc.

This meeting vehemently protests against exhausting longer duty hours beyond 10 or 14 hours, denial of leave, periodical rest, lunch break etc. on the threat of DAR action. This meeting demand to cancel all the penal actions initiated on this account and to ensure 10 hours maximum limit for duty, 4 PRs in a month and 30% leave on demand in the interest of Railway safety.

6) ON DENIAL OF MACP TO RUNNING STAFF

This meeting protest against the denial of the benefit of MACP to the Loco Running Staff on the plea of promotion avenue in the same grade pay and treating them discriminately. This meeting demands to neglect the promotions in the same grade pay for the purpose of MACP, to ensure equal advancement in the career on par with other sections of staff.

7) ON DENIAL OF DUE PROMOIONS BY DEPLOYING OTHER DIVISION RAILWAY CREW IN SBC DIVISION

Crews from other Zonal Railways are working in SBC division violating established working pattern and curtailing our jurisdictional rights destroying the promotional opportunities of SBC division staff. Goods crew from JTJ, GTL and ASK were permitted as a stop gap arrangement to be stopped at once and SBC crew to be utilized to work trains.

8) ON UTILISATION OF TRAFFIC RUNNING STAFF AS CRC, PRC etc.

Traffic Running staff/ YM are utilized at SGT/ SBC crew lobby as CRC in violation or Railway Board orders for booking staff for train service and other duties like breath analyzer test, supervision of crew signing on etc., which is a dangerous practice and is going to lead complications because these staff are unaware of the duties of the sensitive Loco Running staff. So this practice of utilizing such staff shall be stopped henceforth.

9) FILLING UP OF VACANCIES IN RUNNING CADRE INCLUDINNG THAT OF CRC, PRC & CCRC.

A scrutiny of scale check will reveal that the vacancies are lying vacant for a considerable period of time, promoting officiating and discontent among the staff due to denial of opportunities. So the procedure of elimination of vacancy by duly filling up shall be done on a war foot measure.

10) ON REVENGEFUL DENIAL OF PROMOTION TO C. SUNISH, LP/ SBC

This meeting vehemently protests against the revengeful denial of promotion to Com. C. Sunish as Loco Pilot (Mail). The entire Loco Pilots of this division consider him as a role model in integrity, safety consciousness and dedication to his duties. So we demand DRM/ SBC to review the case of Sri. Sunish and order to promote him as earlier as possible.

11) ON EXTENDED CREW B E AT OF EXPRESS TRAINS

Extended crew beats beyond Dharmavaram to GTL/ DHNE were implemented from last 3 months. This arrangement did not make any economy in operation, but reduced the Head Quarter availability of Running Staff by 1/3rd. This will result in consuming most of the rest period at HQ for family requirements and joining duty with improper rest which is a matter affecting safety and hence this meeting demands to revise the crew links with earlier crew beats.

12) ON CREW BOOKING DEPOT AT KJM

All trade unions in SWR had unanimously suggested to shift the Goods Crew booking depot to KJM instead of SGT as proposed by Administration. The present SGT depot is the most inconvenient one and as it is far away from the residences of the staff. The Crew Controller’s office is not only meant for serving Train Orders, but also for other administrative purposes. Now a days staff has to travel to SGT to get a sick memo and to come back to hospital, to meet CCRC to ask leave, getting privilege passes and store items etc. These activities will consume a considerable rest hours of Running Staff and hence we once again demand to shift Crew Booking Depot to KJM in the interest of safety.

13) ON LIMITING DUTY HOUR OF REGULAR AREA SHORT SPECIAL TRAIN CREW TO 10 HOURS

The Light Engine and Area movement train crew are presently utilized for 12 hrs and more. Our Control Department is pressurizing the staff to work even after completion of 11.30 hrs of duty thinking that the minimum limit is 12 hrs. So we demand to limit the duty hour of Area short special trains to 10 hrs from sign on.

14) MIS INTERPRETATION OF HOER WHILE BOOKING LP/ SHUNTING AT YPR

While preparing duty roaster in case of LP/ Shg for utilization at YPR, 8 hour duty is split into two duties of 4 hours each, with a gap of 4 hours rest in between. This is an encroachment of the rest home, because LP/ Shg cannot avail rest either at YPR or at his home. So the roaster shall be modified to 8 hrs continuous as par with other places.

15) ON PROVISION OF POTABLE R-O WATER AT SGT, KJM & SBC LOBBYS

Potable drinking water is essential to maintain good health as contamination of water can cause serious diseases. So necessary steps to be taken to provide R-O/ U-V type water filters at Crew lobbies.

16) ON PROVIDING CREW VAN FOR MOVING CREW TO YPR AND BACK FROM SBC.

Number of trains operating from YPR is increasing day by day. The crew were sent pilot by different trains. Many times they have to spend more time at picking up of trains and even after arrival of trains to go back to SBC. As a solution for this, this meeting demands to provide a crew van ply to and fro between SBC & YPR.
